Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I am a new patient and was pleasant surprised at his thorough review of my history and complaints. He really does not rush you out. I thought I was taking too much of his time and he assured me I was not. Now that is a new revoluation in today's world. I actually look for to my next appointment.

I began seeing Dr. Minerva about ten years ago for treatment of osteoarthritis in my knees. He has always been calm, patient and helpful in providing relief for my pain. My mother had been his patient before me. I watched him treat her with considerable care and respect and have had the same experience as she.
